michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
. >> as you brought up about the fact there is enthusiasm and michelle obama nailed it last night. a lot of passion from the first lady, all of the speakers a lot of red meat to the base as well. the republicans are saying, not a lot of talk about jobs and the president plan and the fact that he doesn't have one that a lot of people know how he'll create them. is bill clinton going to help make that case tonight? he is the grandest star of the left. >> he do think you'll see a forward looking vision for how we create good paying sustainable jobs for the middle class and restore economic security for the middle class, which you didn't hear in tampa. castro talked about building from the middle class out. from president clinton tonight i think you'll hear the fact we built the economy from the middle class out in 90s and resulted in a government surplus and 23 million jobs. in the decade that followed, we pursued the policies that governor romney and congressman ryan proposed. stripping back oversight from banks and polluters and assuming the market will take care of the rest. the problem
's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc
dragged a chair onstage to conjure up an invisible president obama, michelle obama critiqued governor romney without mentioning his name, drawing sharp contrasts with her husband and creating a profile in negatives. >> barack's success isn't about how much money you make. it's about the difference you make in people's lives. we learned about honesty and integrity, that the truth matters, that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules. he's the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs. the issues that come across a president's desk are always the hard ones. the problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer. i have seen first-hand that being president doesn't change who you are. no, it reveals who you are. >> joining us now from charlotte, north carolina, is margaret carlson of bloomberg news. margaret, great to see you. before i get to you, i want to send a question over to our folks on set. senator bradley, someone who has in fact run for president, i want to ask you the question of michelle obama as a surrogate ha
of obama's little sister. i am michelle obama's older brother. any 7-footers out there come give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we have had different upbringings. as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different winning seem, we share a set of values are -- how different we may seem, we share is set of values, values that are as important in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education, and looking out for each other. they are the values of how barack and michele have lived their lives, raise their nieces, and lead this country as president and first lady of the united states. [applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga
meant? >> after, i think everybody i think michelle obama knocked it out of the park i think for many different reasons. for the crowd, enthusiasm. many people look at her, wow, she could be a national candidate on the scene. for me, watching her, her speaking ability and the ability to generate that has grown dramatically in four years. >> what you heard from the romney campaign, it got much attention today. >> as the president said of mitt romney's speech that kind of tribute to success is to say i didn't watch it. no, this convention has run very smoothly, they've presented in front of america's most gorgeous families in all its rounds appearance, at home, in the white house and out around the country. that's what they set out to do. they did it with all the skill of hollywood. and that's not a criticism. they're supposed to do it that way. >> well, look, there's no question, she got the delegates on their feet. today, i saw more buttons with michelle obama's face than i thought the president's. is she real inspired people. i had people texting and tweeting all around the country,
to be done. >> tonight we heard from the star of the obama family. first lady michelle obama. this hour we will be showing you the big moments, the first speeches and we begin with the first lady. take a look. serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had concerns about this journey we'd begun. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight. how would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known. our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games, sundays at grand's house and a date night was either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply love the man i had built that life
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
a picture of the president's wife, the first lady, michelle obama taking in the speeches here, she brought the house down with her own speech last night. once again tonight, bob schieffer is with me here in the anchor booth and our campaign 2012 team is down on the floor. bob, getting president clinton here to make this nomination speech tonight wasn't just a matter of asking him. what is the back story? >> no, you know, think about it, bill clinton's wife ran against barack obama four years ago and things have been a bit rocky between them since then. but about a year ago, the obama people began to make a concerted effort to get bill clinton on this stage tonight. it actually began with an invitation to play golf, then there were calls back and forth, he was asked his opinion on strategy and so forth, and so on, and now she here. they need him, because they think he can get through and talk to the pea people where they are weakest and that is white working class voters. >> bill clinton has become the rock star and tonight is going to be bill clinton night. >> in recent gallup polls presid
on the personal side of her husband. tonight it is michelle obama's time and her turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince people that president obama is likable. check it out. in a recent "washington post" poll, 61% of registered voters said the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. so what does michelle obama need to say tonight to get democrats revved up, convince voters that her husband should get another four years? office? we're going to talk about it, bring in our republican consultant, cnn contributor, alex, and cow c-founder of rebu the dream. good to see you guys both. in person. i love this. cnn grill. likability. you know, alex, you're always talking about i don't have to have a beer with a guy, you know, the economy's really important. but people do want to be able to feel like the person in office gets it, they trust him, they know him well. did he do -- did ann romney do a good enough job last week not to have that be an issue this week? >> i used to work with mitt romney. i always told him if she ever primaried h, i'd vote for her
that we fell in love with really above everything else about barack obama and about michelle obama is what they say about the american dream. here are two people from the unlikeliest of backgrounds raising themselves up, attaining huge incredible personal success and still remaining committed first and foremost to their family and their community. one moment in particular that struck me in her speech is she talked about coming from humble means, but it didn't sound like a hardship. she spoke of the joy and the pride and the hard work in that household, which i think is a powerful rebuttal to the sort of you didn't build that narrative that comes from the republicans and the idea that poor people who require government assistance are lazy, shiftless, dependent. no, there was pride and there was responsibility in that household. >> well, you know, i think it was a great speech. she looked great. she sounded great. in some senses, i would say that michelle obama is a much moral effective speaker than even her husband who is a very gifted speaker. i couldn't find her eyes on the prompter. she
callum. good morning to you. good morning everybody at home. first lady michelle obama headlines the democratic national convention last night. it was a big night for her. she stood in front of a crowd of faithfuls and basically said that the president needs another four years to finish the job. >> i see the concern in his eyes and i hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, you won't believe what these folks are going through, michelle. it's not right. we've got to keep working to fix this. we have so much more to do. [cheers and applause] [shouting]. bill: so already now we have reaction from the romney team saying in part, quote on the first night of president obama's convention not a single speaker uttered the words americans are better off now than they were four years ago. our country deserves real solutions an a plan to turn our economy around, end quote. bob cusack, managing editor of "the hill." let's get to romney's comment first. the speech last night, how did it play? >> bill i was in the arena. it played very well. brought down the house t was genuine. at the same time ve

arrows for fedex and take ups along with it. >> and we've got michelle barack obama delivering the big speech of the democratic national convention last night. one of the main messages, you owe your success to others, listen to this. >> we learned about gratitude and humility, that so many people had a hand in our success from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean and we were taught to value everyone's contribution and treat everyone with respect. >> the janitor, really? and that statement is a stark contrast to mitt romney's message on school success. remember this from last month? >> it's just like a kid in school, who decides, you know, i'm going to work and see if i can make the honor roll. if that kid makes the honor roll, i realize that he got to school on a bus, and the bus driver got him there, but i don't give the bus driver credit for getting the honor roll, i give the kid the credit for the honor roll. stuart: two different messages from two different campaigns. what did you think of michelle obama's speech last night? we want to know. tell u
debt. no way around that. megyn: thank you so much, stewart. coming up, first lady michelle obama saying one of her husbands best quality is that he sees no us or them in america. from bankers to business owners, the tea partiers have felt differently about that. experiencing the wrath of the white house. a panel and a fair and balanced debate coming up. new questions about our closest allies. a harvard professor and attorney joins us live to tell us why this change is causing problems in the jewish community. president obama will be giving his acceptance speech tomorrow night after this. >> we are here in the time warner cable every night. this is where the president will accept the nomination tomorrow night. on the stage behind me. it feeds about 20,000 people, which is substantial. it is quite a shift from the bank of america stadium or the president will accept the nomination tomorrow night. while the democrats say the official reason for the change of venue is the weather, there have been conflicting reports about what is expected tomorrow night. the local forecast here, the
first lady michelle obama had to say. >>> charges of national security leaks rocking israel forcing prime minister netanyahu to cancel a cabinet meeting. what one of his cabinet members is demand something even more shocking. we'll tell you about that. >>> verdict watch at the drew peterson murder trial. the jury is deliberating the case of the former police officer accused of killing his third wife while he remains under a cloud of suspicion in the disappearance of his fourth wife. all new, all live, it's "happening now" jenna: hi, everybody. great to see you on this wednesday. lots of news to get to today. i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. breaking at the democratic convention, president obama's big speech nurse night is being moved from an outdoor football stadium to an indoor arena. democratic officials citing concerns about the possibility of a severe weather. jenna: wasn't just republicans that have to deal with weather. jon: both parties having weather problems. jenna: even in politics there are things you can't control. jon: don't mess with mother nature. jenna: don't mess
of san antonio. finally, first lady michelle obama. this of course is not michelle obama as per speech of the national convention. she spoke about her husband four years ago at the democratic convention. her remarks run about 40 minutes. [applause] as you might imagine, for barack, running for president is nothing compared to that first game of basketball with my brother, craig. i can't tell you how much it means to have craig and my mom here tonight. like craig, i can feel my dad looking down on us, just as i've felt his presence in every grace-filled moment of my life. and at six-foot-six, i've often felt like craig was looking down on me, too, literally. but the truth is, both when we were kids and today, craig wasn't looking down on me, he was watching over me. and he has been there for me every step of the way since that clear day, february, 19 months ago, when, with little more than our faith in each other and a hunger for change, we joined my husband, barack obama, on the improbable journey that has led us to this moment. but each of us comes here also by way of our own improbab
of this convention? >> when you're able to start with michelle obama and give bill clinton an opportunity to lay it out and then be able to give a ring side perspective like my dad did, that's what it was all about. michelle, bill clinton and then barack obama, that's, the convention was phenomenal. >> is he comfortable playing bad cop sometimes? i was surprised at the bin laden -- >> he was. the reality is he wants to make, to give the american people the perspective of what the president does every day. to make sure average americans are taken care of and that they have a foundation to build a better future and that's what last night was about. given the decision, the single biggest decision in his administration, going after and taking out bin laden. that's what last night was about. >> were you surprised, i mean, did you guys look at what romney did on that thursday night, the lack of mention of afghanistan and was more add it last night to talk about national security than maybe a week ago? >> i don't know, but i'm confidence the president would talk about veterans any way. i'm confidence m
just arrived air force one and we told by the aides he is pleased with what first lady michelle obama did last night. they are very disappointed in the campaign and in the white house, that they have to move the venue from the outdoor stadium, holding 65,000 to about 20,000 at the time-warner center. a local meteorologist tweeted it could be clear on thursday, the republican national convention suggested maybe it was a lack of enthusiasm they could not fill the stadium. that's what really led the democrats, not the weather concerns, to move the venue. i spoke to the deputy campaign manager, and she said that is nonsense. >> 65,000 people that were scheduled to come tomorrow night probably disagree with that and are pretty disappointed they cannot come to see the president. we are disappointed, too. but the chance of severe weather, the chance of putting the people at risk was too high and we could not risk it. >>reporter: officials tell us they had a waiting list beyond the 65,000 people of up to 19,000 or 20,000 that wanted to get in the stadium. they say they would have filled it an
, first lady, michelle obama. we'll show you the first lady, and the speeches, take a look. >> serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had some concerns about this journey we had started. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country, and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how will we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight? how would they feel being unrooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known? see, our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games. sundays at grandmother's house. and a date night for barack obama and me was either date, dinner or a movie, because i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply loved the man i had built that life with. and i didn't want that to change as he became president. i loved barak ju

[ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g

, though. michelle obama came out the first night and talked about why she and her husband have lived the american dream. we are you. we don't just feel you. we are you. bill clinton talked about why the other side cannot provide the american dream. now i think president obama will come out tonight and explain why he's the better man to get people to that dream. >> luke, i thought it was interesting last night. the number one word i heard, after the word "i," was bill clinton constantly saying "cooperation." it's a powerful argument because he's talking about an america where we all work together. i think if you're financially struggling and scared, what do you want to hear that, you know, we're all going to build it ourselves because we built it ourselves so you can too? or we're going to work together. we're going to be your partner. we're going to work together and cooperate to move america forward. but within the theme of cooperation, of course, is what happens in congress? we know that the obstruction plan started as the inauguration was going on. so if obama's re-elected, do the
